Playbill.com's feature series Their Favorite Things asks members of the theatre community to share the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices of Olivier and two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone, who makes her first appearance on the acclaimed FX series "American Horror Story: Coven" Oct. 23 and will return to Carnegie Hall Nov. 7 for her fourth solo concert, Far Away Places; click here for tickets. LuPone's "Favorite Things" are arranged chronologically by female artists, then male artists and, finally, show title.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
